Architectural Association

Architectural Association
   In 1847, after much complaint in The Builder about the inadequacies of the training available for architects, the Architectural Association was founded in London, predominantly by younger practitioners who had not yet made their name. It was the successor of the Association of Architectural Draughtsmen, set up five years earlier. Its objectives combined the enhancement of the professional standing of its members through improved educational opportunities with the development of both the practical and aesthetic aspects of architecture. From relatively modest beginnings, the Architectural Association gained numbers and respect as it assumed responsibilities for teaching and examining and began to collect books and other material for its library. The Architectural Association retains its status in the training and education of architects and, for example, Will Alsop, David Chipperfield and Rick Mather have all studied and/or taught there.
